The core gameplay of Sleeping Dogs consists of giving the player an open world environment in which to move around freely. Sleeping Dogs is played as an over-the-shoulder, third-person perspective action-adventure game with role-playing elements. The player controls Wei Shen, a Chinese-American police officer, as he goes undercover to infiltrate the Sun On Yee Triad organization. On foot, the player character has the ability to walk, run, jump, climb over obstacles and swim, as well as use weapons and martial arts in combat. Players also drive a variety of vehicles including cars, boats, and motorcycles.




Sleeping Dogs performance is strong across the board, and you can see in Uber Mode, the card is ahead of both high-end NVIDIA offerings at all resolutions.


Comparing Quiet and Uber mode against each other, you can see at 1680 x 1050 little changes. As we move further and further up the resolution table, and more and more pressure is placed on the GPU, Uber mode starts to make a difference.
